Fun Find #5
Some crafty swag. A giveaway. Yes, a surprise prize giveaway. No need to click away from this post.
Just leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on Monday, July 28th. I'll pick one of you to win a small Moxie Fab World Surprise Prize. The winner will be announced on July 30th.
All of you who rocked it out, putting forth 128 (!!!) fabulous entries in the Wonderful Words Challenge. Each and every single one of them was fantastic! A big hearty thank you goes out to all of you for playing along and sharing your projects. I sure hope you all had fun!
So how about we officially wrap this challenge up and name ourselves three winners?! Drum roll, please. Here we go.
From the color combo to all the happy elements, this card screams fun. And check out Lisa's rainbow style die-cut words. She adhered strips of cardstock to a larger piece of cardstock and die-cut them. Such a lovely look! Way to go, Lisa!
What do you say about a card that just plain makes you smile? Pia's card does that for me. Add to it that I love how she combined together the different word dies to make her sentiment. It's just fantastic. Nice job, Pia!
Congrat to the winners! Winners, please drop me an email at teriishere AT Gmail DOT com with your mailing address. You've just scored a Say It - Happy steel die from Technique Tuesday. I'll also hook you up with a Moxie Fab challenge winning badge.
While I could only name three winners, I'd like to send some shout-outs to these fine folks:
Wednesdays are always a good day to announce winners!
And I've got one winner to announce today.
The winner of the Dapper Dan paper pad mentioned in this post here is: Carmen N. (7/21 @ 2:32 p.m.).
Congrats, Carmen! Please drop me an email with your snail mail address at teriishere AT Gmail DOT com by 8/6/14.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
I got in a little crafting time, spent some quality time with my dog and went on a family fun run/walk. All in all, it was a good weekend. I mean, check out the bling that came home with me.
Of course, friends, don't get too excited. Everyone who took part in the run/walk got one. (Wink!)
So have you heard about the August issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine? The digital issue is available for purchase now. (You can also get a digital subscription here.)
The issue features a lot of cool stuff. From cards and scrapbook pages with dream catchers and feathers on them to cards designed on a diagonal to cards that use trendy clothespins, paper clips and other clips, there's a lot of inspiration to be found in this issue.
I was particularly drawn to this inspiring card (on page 69) from Cristina Martinez Diez.
(You're Amazing Card by Cristina Martinez Diez)
While it appears in a feature on designing on a diagonal, I thought how Cristina created the sentiment with stamping and cardstock was so cool! In fact, I created this card using her sentiment technique.
My sentiment isn't as detailed as Cristina's, but the concept is the same.
Start by stamping a sentiment on a piece of cardstock. Then stamp it a couple more times in different colors on ink on another piece of cardstock.
Keep one sentiment panel complete. Cut the others into strips. Adhere them onto the complete piece.
Keep going until you've added all the strips of color you want to add.
Ta-da! And fun, huh?!
Thinking about giving Cristina's sentiment technique a try? I'd love to see what you make doing it. Share your project online and then leave a link for me in the comments field below so I can check it out!
It's beautiful, glorious, super awesome, extra fabulous with cherries on top
(Insert drama pause here.)
Friday, how I love thee.
And there's no better way to kick off Friday than with a few Fun Finds.
